On Friday, February 9th, our 5th and 6th grade students had the chance to be a part of a Positive Behavior Support Physical Activity Day.  Rudyard Elementary loaded up two buses full of 5th and 6th grade students and headed to Northwoods Camp to enjoy a day of snowshoeing, cross country skiing and making their own healthy lunch. Students and staff arrived at Northwoods Camp, using the morning to do crafts, play games, and prepare their lunch. The students made vegetable soup (where they cut up their own vegetables), strawberry spinach salad, two kinds of hummus and pita chips for their healthy eating lunch. Many parents came out to help with the events and spend the day engaging in these physical activities with their child. The afternoon was filled with more fun, with many students and parents having the opportunity to try out snowshoeing and cross-country skiing for physical activity. We especially want to thank our volunteers for their time, and Project Healthy Schools, who helped pay for this function. It was a great day for students, parents and staff!

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Students and parents worked together by cutting up vegetables and making their own vegetable soups. Students then made a spinach salad.
